  • I tried these as i have loads of okara and i liked the flavourings. However i found the mixture was a slop, not possible to shape. I added oats until it was thick enough to shape but still soft. I wasnt sure how much moisture the oats would absorb.. i would make again with the oats and a bit more of the flavourings
